Sites like Air France, Airbnb or several French media were inaccessible between 5.30 p.m. and 6.30 p.m.
For more than an hour, many sites were inaccessible. French media like LeParisien.fr, Liberation.fr or LeFigaro.fr were affected. Other sites like Airbnb, Steam or PlayStation Network have also been disconnected.
The problem seems to come from the host Akamai who admits having been the victim of an incident. The company indicates that it has implemented a fix to remedy the problem.
A similar outage crippled much of the global internet last June, when middleman Fastly collapsed.
